Nail heads used to embellish furniture is nothing new. In fact, they are a classic detail in furniture design. However….If I had a nickel for every nail head I saw at High Point this Spring I would be one wealthy decorator! In fact, I would say the vast majority of chairs at this Spring market had nail heads.

Moving beyond upholstery, designer Mary McDonald used nail heads on her wood bedside tables for Chaddock FurnitureĀ (I apologize for the blurry cell phone photo).

Even accessories have not escaped the nail head obsession. One of my favorite finds was this little gold topped white leather box completely surrounded with black nail heads.

So, the big question is…are you a nail head fan or do you think they are being over used?
